Life Looks Bigger

Wayne Miller (We the Jury) situates his poems in life’s looming dilemmas, vowing–and inviting us–to “expand our relationship / with Death” and with every challenging, uncomfortable subject we meet.”

Andrew Schelling (The Facts at Dog Tank Spring) speaks to the vastness of the American West while embodying traditions of Europe and Asia with echoes of Shakespeare, women poets of old India, and classical Chinese verse. As one reviewer said, The Facts at Dog Tank Spring is “less a book than a world.”

Collectively, these award-winning poets expand our perspective on the emotional and the natural; as Schelling writes, “life looks bigger.”
